The Westin Poinsett Hotel TO PARTICIPATE IN AUTISM SPEAKS LIGHT IT UP BLUE CAMPAIGN IN SUPPORT OF WORLD AUTISM AWARENESS DAY AND
AUTISM AWARENESS MONTH
 

Buildings Illuminate Blue On April 1 and 2 as Part of a Global Initiative to Help Raise Awareness and Shine a Bright Light on a Growing Public Health Crisis 

Mayor Knox White has signed a proclamation in honor of Autism Awareness Month and World Autism Awareness Day


Greenville's Westin Poinsett Hotel water fountain will illuminate with special blue lights on the evening of Friday, April 1, Saturday, April 2 and/or the month of April  in support of Autism Speaks' global Light It Up Blue campaign to celebrate World Autism Awareness Day (April 2) and Autism Awareness Month. Over 450 iconic landmarks, airports, bridges, sports arenas, museums, concert halls, restaurants as well as retail, corporate and media partners in over 120 U.S. cities and 30 countries will light up in bright blue that evening to raise awareness and shine a light on autism as a growing public health crisis now affecting 1 in every 110 American children. 

Ways members of the community can support Autism Speaks Light It Up Blue campaign:

  • Light windows or homes with specially marked blue light bulbs and LED lanterns sold exclusively at Home Depot stores nationwide
  • Download the FREE LIUB iPhone App at the iTunes Store and turn your own pictures blue with a choice of five different style frames
  • Bake puzzle piece shaped cookies and frost them with blue icing, then bring them to your school, work or place of worship to raise autism awareness
  • Wear blue clothing and the Autism Speaks puzzle piece pin on April 2 and ask your co-workers, schools and friends to wear blue too. Take pictures and add them to our Flickr gallery at www.lightitupblue.org
  • Build a Blue Website and ask friends and family to support Autism Speaks by making a donation to your personal page
